Articles by Ken Townley

Ken Townley

Ken Townley is a carp fishing fanatic. He has fished for the species exclusively since 1965 and in over thirty years has amassed a considerable knowledge of the carp fishing game.

He is a full time professional angling journalist and is probably the most widely published carp fishing writer on the scene at present, writing as many as ten articles a month for European carp fishing magazines. He is also involved with the PR aspect of carp fishing being a consultant for five French and four UK leisure companies and venues. He is also a freelance contributor to a photo-library where his work is in great demand. He has published two books about carp fishing and contributed to various compilations and part-work magazines. He specialises in bait, rigs and foreign fishing, particularly carp fishing in France.

Currently his personal best carp are a 43lb 12oz mirror, a 41lb 12oz common and a 21lb 12oz ghost carp. He fishes an average of three days a week, week in, week out and when he is not fishing he is busy in front of a PC, pounding out the articles. He is 54 years old, married and lives with his carp fishing wife, Carole, in Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall.
